What is the Scarborough Gift Card?

We have partnered with North Yorkshire LEP. Scarborough Borough Council and The Brunswick Shopping Centre to fund a gift card scheme for Scarborough for the next three years.

Towns and cities throughout the UK use gift card schemes to lock in localised spend to support local businesses and now more than ever, it is paramount that we do everything we can.

The gift card is being phased-in to ensure that the town centre area is saturated first before expanding to the periphery areas, but we are urging all BID businesses to complete the sign up below asap so you can be included in launch activity.

You don’t need any other equipment other than your normal PDQ machine and no fees are passed onto yourself.  

Residents can purchase the gift cards online or in The Brunswick from a card dispensing machine and then spend their cards in the participating businesses.  So long as you take card payments, you can be included from the very beginning.

Investment over 3 years:  £20,000
